    Hi Sassenach, sorry to disappoint, but "Sassenach" is a disparaging name for an English person used by people from Scotland.

    Urban Dictionary: sassenach

    My user name is purely because I am getting older and less tolerant and have now managed to create a persona where I can moan and groan and no-one really takes me seriously.

    Hi all, I had a look at the synopsis of the books, titled 'Cross Stitch' over here. Far too much chick lit for my tastes. From what I can gather it seems to be that this is a depiction of Scotland as accurate as Braveheart or Brigadoon.

    The name is disparaging and was used throughout my childhood as an insult.
    An English person in Scotland could use the name as a self deprecating introduction as in, "oh I'm a sassenach".

    Much as I call my wife (of 40 years) an old bat.

    Actually, just thought of a more relevant idiom; Americans call us Limeys - can be an insult or a nickname.
